Matty Reed came out strong in the swim and bike to finish up at a very respectable 3rd place podium finish with Craig Alexander winning and Terenzo Bozzone earning 2nd place. Dominating the tri-scene since the 90's, Reed, known as "Boom Boom" is a dominant force and fared well against stiff competition.
Reed's twitter feed during the race kept us all informed--here are a few quotes of the race and weekend from @boomboomreed and his Facebook page:
- Was a tough day out there today. Gave it what I had on the day and for that I am pleased. Amazing race and got beat by two champions.
- At the airport headed home. Hard as Hell race today. Beaten by two Champs! Thanks @rev3 great Event!
Andy Potts also competed well this past weekend at the K-Swiss Ironman 70.3 Kansas event. After setting a new course record in the swim, Potts battled hard against Chris Lieto til the bitter end, but ended up with a 2nd place finish.
Also an active twitter feed (@Andy_Potts) kept fans informed of the race.
